This weekend was our town’s biannual River Festival and we’ve been busy getting sunburnt and eating ice cream. Oh, and doing a spot of recruitment!
We had a joint Scout and Guide stall this year, which led to much competition to reach the girls first! Ultimately, though we were keen to recruit more girls, it’s new leaders we’re really after, as we have long waiting lists for Rainbows and Brownies in our division (like some many). We may have managed a few more, but most people I spoke to turned out to be leaders in other parts of the country! I did speak to some Senior Section aged girls who would be interested in being Young Leaders, which is a start. A few years time and they could be leaders too!
